Mmmmm…Cheesy Turkey Enchiladas. I used ground turkey but you could totally swap for ground beef. These have chili beans, enchilada sauce, cilantro, cheddar…you know, everything fabulous rolled into one. If you’re in a hurry at night, you can always make these the night before or that morning and just keep them in the fridge until you’re ready to bake. Super simple!
This recipe serves four.
1 pound of ground turkey
1 onion, chopped
1 (15 oz) can of chili beans
2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese, divided (plus a little more for garnish)
1 (14 oz) can of enchilada sauce
8 flour tortillas
chopped cilantro to garnish
Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
salt and pepper
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Lightly spray an 8×8 baking dish with cooking spray, set aside.
Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium-high heat, brown your ground turkey in a drizzle of EVOO. Once browned and crumbly, add in your chopped onion along with a generous pinch of both salt and pepper. Reduce heat to low and stir in your chili beans and one cup of your cheddar cheese. Simmer together about five minutes. Next, take a tortilla and spoon your turkey mixture down the center. Roll and place seem side down in your prepared baking dish. Repeat. Once all of the enchiladas are in the baking dish, pour your can of enchilada sauce down over the top of everything. Sprinkle your remaining cup of cheese across the top of your sauce and place in the oven.
Bake about 25 minutes.
Remove from oven and serve with a garnish of a little more cheddar cheese and chopped cilantro.
Dinner is just so good!
